Want an effortless way to style curly hair for kids without the hassle, knots, and frizzy pouf? Virtue® ambassador and stylist Gia Wendt shares her tips and tricks for easily achieving bouncy, happy, tangle-free curls with Shannon O’Brien, real Virtue® user and mom, and her curly-haired, adorable daughter, Luella.
Wash and condition with Curl Shampoo and Curl Conditioner .
On wet hair, spray Leave-In Conditioner focusing on mid-length through ends to help with tangles.
Then, brush with bristles that are flexible, as not to pull at strands.
Using 6-in-1 Styler, apply a dime to nickel size amount, emulsify in hands, and finger comb through hair from roots to ends.
Dispense a dollop of Curl-Defining Whip into hands and begin by patting Whip at the roots and then finger through hair. Add more as needed, and begin to scrunch into hair from ends up to mid-length.
With a diffuser attachment on hair dryer, set dryer to medium or low setting, and circulate the diffuser around the head, while scrunching hair with your free hand.
After a few minutes, begin to ‘cup’ hair into the diffuser from the ends, holding it for a few seconds in each section. Work your way around the head, while scrunching hair with free hand, and ‘cupping’ different sections.
Move to the roots and lift sections up with free hand and lightly ‘cupping’ sections near the root. A great tip is to lean head towards the diffuser for easier ‘cupping.’
Diffuse until you’ve achieved the level of dry you’d like, as you can allow hair to continue air drying.
Apply a dime size amount of 6-in-1 Styler to hands and scrunch through hair for added hold and definition without weight.
